Do you believe in fate or destiny, what would you choose?

Fate does not care about my plans,
for it knows what is meant to be.
It tells me
everything happens for a reason
so forget about colluding with destiny.

Fate has a higher purpose, a direction a goal
which if I am honest,
sometimes feels like an insult
or a direct blow.

So do I trust in fate
even when I do not understand,
the hand that has been dealt
and the cards that are on show.

Do I subscribe to a higher purpose
and believe all will come good in the end.
Or do I do nothing 
and know that was always my fate
with no choice or free will to expend.

For as long as I have this existential burden.
I have decided it is down to me to believe.
To be accountable for my own actions
and find harmony in my spiritual beliefs.

So I am drawing up a new contract with destiny
in the knowledge that it is for me to make.
With the hope the two can exist hand in hand
and there is no fatalistic penalty at stake.
